Your old virginity is like one of our French withered pears: it looks ill, it eats drily.
Some people say that I am out of my tree
Or just a strawberry fool
Someday they'll see 'til then I'll blow you a raspberry
'Cos apples and pears are me
All men should have a drop of treason in their veins, if the nations are not to go soft like so many sleepy pears.Dame Rebecca formerly Cecily Isabel Fairfield West
A pear-tree planted nigh: 'Twas charg'd with fruit that made a goodly show, And hung with dangling pears was every bough.Alexander Pope
If music is frozen architecture, then the potpourri is frozen coffee-table gossip... Potpourri is the art of adding apples to pears…arnold schoenberg
The earth with yellow pears
And overgrown with roses wild
Upon the pond is bent,
And swans divine,
With kisses drunk
You drop your heads
In the sublimely sobering water.
But where, with winter come, am I
To find, alas, the floweres, and where
And the shadow of the world?
Cold the walls stand
And the wordless, in the wind
The weathercocks are rattling.
